KIDNEY STONES – Dr Onyango Oluoch – Urologist - 0741254745 - Is KIDNEY STONES SPECIALIST in Nairobi, Kenya.

The kidneys are responsible for removing waste from the blood. These waste products are then combined, making urine, so urine naturally contains many dissolved minerals and salts. If there isn't enough fluid to form urine, these minerals and salts can clump together and form kidney stones, otherwise known as renal calculi, Nephrolithiasis, or Urolithiasis.

Kidney Stones are small hard deposits that are found in the kidney or along the ureter (the narrow tube that transports urine from the kidney to the bladder). They can cause pain, infection, blockage or damage to the kidney if left untreated.

How are kidney stones treated?
Dr Onyango Oluoch reiterates that treatment of kidney stones will depend on the size of the stone and whether or not it is causing urinary obstruction. As an urologist, he will be able to assess you and do the necessary tests to diagnose your condition. Once diagnosed, he will be able to determine the most suitable treatment option for your specific case.

Dr Onyango Oluoch emphasizes that the treatment of choice also depends on the symptoms, patient and stone characteristics (size, location, density, and composition) as well as patient preference.

What symptoms can be expected with kidney stones?
Symptoms of a problematic kidney stone or urinary obstruction may include pain in the lower abdomen or groin, blood in the urine, persistent urge to urinate, passing little to no urine, foul-smelling urine, pain when urinating, fever, nausea and vomiting.

Kidney stones can become so problematic if lodged in the ureter (the tube between the kidney and the bladder). This urinary obstruction then blocks the flow of urine from the kidney and can cause serious damage to the kidneys whose treatment may require surgeries.
